Pokemon Go Arlo

August 2020’s challenge for Pokemon Go players pits them against another Team GO Rocket leader – Arlo. Arlo is one of the difficult leaders to beat, and hence, the rewards are great as well. Here’s our guide to beating Arlo, best counters, weakness, and more.

Pokemon Go Arlo Slots

Arlo has three slots and following are the pokemon that you’ll have to counter, most probably –

Slot 1

Slot 2

  • Charizard
  • Blastoise
  • Steelix

Slot 3

  • Scizor
  • Dragonite
  • Salamence

Counter for Pineco – Slot 1

To beat Pineco, you can use the following pokemon –

  • Reshiram
  • Darmanitan
  • Chandelure
  • Volcarona
  • Rampardos
  • Moltres
  • Blaziken

But don’t have any of these pokemon in your first slot. For your 1st Slot pokemon, have a Rock-type pokemon. This will help you beat Sierra’s 3rd slot pokemon. To beat Pineco, the following slot-combination should be the best –

  • Slot 1 – Tyranitar
  • Slot 2 – Chandelure
  • Slot 3 – Based on Arlo’s 3rd Slot Pokemon, you’ll have to counter it

Counter for Charizard, Blastoise, Steelix – Slot 2

If Arlo has Charizard, your slots should be –

  • Slot 1 – Tyranitar
  • Slot 2 – Chandelure
  • Slot 3 – Rampardos

If Arlo has Blastoise, your slots should be –

  • Slot 1 – Tyranitar
  • Slot 2 – Chandelure
  • Slot 3 – Roselia

If Arlo has Steelix, your slot should be –

  • Slot 1 – Tyranitar
  • Slot 2 – Chandelure
  • Slot 3 – Heatran

Counter for Scizor, Dragonite, Salamence – Slot 3

Your Tyranitar can easily defeat Dragonite and Salamence with Smack Downs and one final Stone Edge. So, the only problem is Scizor. If Arlo’s final Pokemon is Scizor, replace Tyranitar with a different Fire-type Pokemon, like Chandelure, Heatran, Charizard, Reshiram, Moltres, Darmanitan, and Entei.
